(Best Syndication News) - Panasonic is launching two new streaming media players that do not have a disc player. The compact players are the DMP-MST60 and the DMP-MS10. Panasonic’s new set-top boxes are similar to the Roku player or Apple TV.

The DMP-MST60 streaming player features VIERA Connect, Panasonic’s proprietary IPTV platform which uses an Ethernet port to connect to the Internet. This model will allow for 3D streaming video and has a suggested retail price of $99.99. To get that price, buyers will need to preorder through their online store. The streaming player allows users to browse the Internet with a web browser. With an Android smart device, users can watch movies, see images, and listen to music with Miracast on a TV set. The user can participate in online video games, music, social networking, sports, and other Video-on-demand (VOD) applications.

(Best Syndication News) - A recent animal study suggests that cosmic radiation could speed up the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in astronauts traveling on deep space missions. The scientists published their findings in the journal PLOS ONE.

Senior study author, M. Kerry O’Banion, M.D., Ph.D., a professor in the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, explained the cancer health risk factor due to radiation exposure in space has already been acknowledged. However, their researchers wanted to see if there was a risk for developing cognitive problems from the radiation exposure, which could lead to an accelerated onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Earth’s magnetic field provides protection from much of the radiation, but when astronauts travel into space they exposed to a variety of radioactive particles.

Mountains on Hawaiian Islands dissolving from the Inside

KKKKKKKJJJJJJJJJJJJ

(Best Syndication News) - It will not be happening anytime soon, but scientists believe that groundwater and streams are dissolving mineral material from within the mountains of Hawaii eventually causing the landmass to flatten. Surface erosion will not be the largest contributor to flattening these mountains and scientists believe this process will take more than 1.5 million years just to start.

Before the terrain flattens, the mountains of Oahu will continue to rise in elevation as the island is pushed to the northwest. The mountains should continue to rise for 1.5 million years, explained scientists from the Brigham Young University.
